I don't have any new pictures to post yet. Well, I have lots of new pictures, I don't have a new computer yet. So, I am still stuck posting here from work. Been very busy at my friends sanctuary. We have more cages to build, a tiger to relocate there, plus a lot of planning for the upcomming fall festival at the end of the month. Amber gave me a HUGE scare 3 weeks ago. She got out and was on the run for 34 hours!! She got out the side door, because our neighbor's cats were there, wanting to come in. I thought the screen door had latched, but it didn't. When she stood against the door to look out, the door opened and off she went!! I was up all night looking for her and ended up going to bed around 7 in the morning, after walking all night long. I slept for just a couple hours and went back out to look for her, but the remnants of hurricane Ike where here, with winds of 70 mph and I knew it would be close to impossible to find her. We got up at 5am the next day to begin our search again. Boris was outside in the enclosure and he started pacing like crazy and Nakoma was looking intently. My wife started searching with the light and there Amber was, sitting on our propane tank looking at us as if to say well, you going to let me in??
34 hours of panic and worry was now over!! What a way to begin my vacation. I built a lockout door between our kitchen and laundry room, where the side door is. The laundry room is now a lockout area. So, before we go out that side door, we shut the lockout door so Amber can no longer follow us to the side door. If we go out the back door, that leads you into the enclosure, so if Amber follows us out there, it is not a problem. Amber does not like any other "stray" cats in her yard. I feed my neighbor's cat, because they no longer care about her. That is why she comes to my side door all the time. So this lockout door now serves as an extra measure of protection to prevent any escapes. Amber is VERY jealous and does not like any other cats in "her" yard.
